Knickerbocker Bar & Grill

Due to the Mandated Closure of the Restaurant during this Corona Virus Outbreak, most staff has filed for Unemployment. Unfortunately, unemployment wages are limited, and for tipped employees, they will receive only a fraction of what they would have earned. It was suggested by many of our loyal customers, that I start a Go Fund Me Page, so we can try to help out the staff. We look forward to returning to normal business, but only when it is safe to do so.
We wish that everyone stay safe and healthy.
The outpouring of donations from our friends has been so inspiring, especially since everyone has been affected by this situation. Many of the staff is having a very difficult time navigating the Unemployment Insurance nightmare, and a lot of the supposed funds, loans etc, are not as readily available as they are making it seem. For these reasons I have increased our goal, obviously no one knows how long this is going to affect us. We greatly appreciate ALL of our donors, local, and others. And every little bit helps. Hope you all have a Happy & Healthy Holiday, stay safe, and be thankful to be around loved ones.
The Shut Down continues, and unfortunately the Phase parameters we are currently in, does not make sense to open with. In addition, there is mandatory repairs that Must be performed before we can reopen. This will compound the delayed Re Opening. I can assure you, we will re open, but I don't think until Sept.
For this reason, I have raised our Goal. Your assistance has been greatly appreciated, by staff members who really need it. We all thank you you, and wish everyone a Happy and SAFE Summer.
